Hate and Bias Incident Reporting
The UW-System denounces any sort of discriminatory language and behavior. As a broad university system, we strive to create an inclusive environment where students, faculty, staff, and our guests feel welcomed and respected.
What is a Bias Incident?
Something a person does say or otherwise expresses that is motivated by bias related to age, race, ethnicity, sex, color, creed, religion, disability, veteran status, gender identity or expression, national origin, sexual orientation, political affiliation, marital status, or any combination of these or other related factors.
Examples of hate or bias incidents may include, but are not limited to:
- intimidation tactics
